Information for students coming on campus

Students MUST NOT be on campus unless they have a specific reason to be on the premises (e.g. a timetabled class, an appointment with a staff member or a booked appointment at the Library.). The continued health, safety and welfare of all staff, students and visitors is our highest priority. 

Library reopening

The Library services on each campus are reopening on Monday 19 April.  To ensure a safe environment for staff and students, a booking system is in place.  Students and staff should book 24 hours in advance to access library services including PC usage, access to study spaces and book collection (click & collect).  Unfortunately, we will not be able to accommodate students without bookings. Students must bring their student ID to gain access to the library for their booking.
